8 QBs Assigned To New XFL Teams Including Cardale Jones

In anticipation of its inaugural kick-off in February of 2020, the XFL has assigned eight quarterbacks to XFL teams; these quarterbacks are among the XFL’s target list of players which largely includes players formerly released from the NFL or otherwise unsigned.

A big name among these QBs is former Ohio State signal-caller Cardale Jones. The former college football standout was a three-year backup in the NFL for the Los Angeles Chargers and the Buffalo Bills. Jones will join the D.C. Defenders as their presumptive starting QB.

Landry Jones, another former NFL QB who spent six years as a backup, will be headed off to join the Dallas Renegades where he will be coached by Bob Stoops, his former college coach during his years as an Oklahoma Sooner.

Another Texas team, the Houston Roughnecks, will benefit from the arm of Phillip Walker, a former standout at Temple University in Philadelphia. Walker joins the XFL after spending 3 seasons in Indianapolis with the Colts organization.

Luis Perez, a former QB at Texas A&M-Commerce and in the Alliance of American Football (AAF), will join the Los Angeles Wildcats. Perez joins the XFL following a career as a professional bowler as well.

The New York Guardians were assigned former Penn State star Matt McGloin, who also played for the Oakland Raiders for three years and started seven games for them during that span.

Jordan Ta’amu, an undrafted QB who was a two-year starter as Mississippi, will likely get the nod as the starter for the St. Louis Battlehawks come opening day.

Brandon Silvers briefly signed by the Jets last spring and a veteran of the AAF is expected to take the reins of the Seattle Dragons.

The Tampa Bay Vipers will welcome in Aaron Murray, an AAF veteran, and a four-year NFL backup QB.

Many things will be similar to the widely known NFL, 52 players on a roster with 46 active for games. However, the salaries of these players will be drastically less, with most coming in around $55,000 a year.

The next steps for the XFL will feature a two-day draft later this week and then the finalization of teams leading up to the season opener in February.
